Project Fi has made the leap that all fledgling Google projects aspire to - after around three-and-a-half years, it has dropped the "project" and evolved into "Google Fi," with a brand new logo to boot.

Verizon boasts 'first on 5G' with an in-house residential solution only available to a small portion of customers

Verizon's done it. The carrier has launched its commercial 5G network, becoming a world leader in the next generation of wireless technology. Or so it says.

Libratone Track+ review: An almost perfect wireless in-ear active noise cancelling headset

Release after release, the Libratone name is becoming more familiar to me. While I raised my eyebrow the first time I heard Jeff mention it, I was quickly won over by its colorful and beautifully minimalist speakers. Over the past year, Libratone made more headway with us, Android fans, by releasing two products along with the Pixel 2: the Q Adapt USB-C in ear earphones (which Richard reviewed) and the Q Adapt Wireless on ear headphonesThen at CES 2018, Libratone followed up by announcing the TRACK+, a set of wireless in-ear noise cancelling earbuds. For $199, they had to stand up to the challenge of not only being good, but being near awesome to justify the price.

Wicked Audio Endo review: The boring kind of cheap headphones
